What cosmetics to use and when is the best time to perform bridal bake-up?
Before or after a hairdresser visit?
Women preparing for their wedding keep asking themselves such questions. Obviously, make-up has to be done after stylizing hair. To demonstrate, bridal make-up cannot be performed before curling the hair or pining hair decorations because it may be wiped off. What is more, during washing hair, the hairdresser might simply wash down the make-up foundation, eye shadows and lead to false eyelash coming off. It is way, it is easier to stylize hair first and then apply make-up.
In the morning or right before the wedding? Here is yet another question that rankles wives-to-be. If you have your make-up done too early, it may simply run down your face and does not hold up to the ceremony. On the other hand, if you wait with your make-up for too long, you may not manage to put on a wedding gown on time, welcome the groom and his parents. Consequently, you may be late for your own wedding.
What cosmetics to choose for bridal make-up performance?
Basically, such cosmetics must retain several features. Firstly, the quality. Certainly, cosmetics of high quality hold better and longer on a face. Furthermore, these will survive the night of dances and plays. After all, any bride would like her mascara to land on cheeks and lipstick to be completely vanished. Secondly, the degree of camouflage. If you have got acne skin, dark circles around eyed or scars and discolourations, pick such cosmetics that manage to hide all the imperfections. You can choose natural make-up as well. In such a case, use light cosmetics of shades similar to your skin tone. Thirdly, properties. Match the cosmetics with your complexion needs. Sensitive skin requires mineral and loose cosmetics. Moisturizing products do wonder for dry skin. If you have oily skin, always keep near you mattifying films.
